My jeep was having a lot of issues staying running and was acting like it was out of gas, it turned out that what I always thought was a 12 gallon tank was actually a 20 gallon bowed in tank with a damaged fuel pump. Eventually the pump was so bent into a v like shape that it had holes in the lines and was not drawing any fuel. I bought a new tank and the problem was solved.
we dropped my fuel tank after a years worth of mysterious problems thinking that the fuel pump must be out. The fuel pump was bent into a funny shape therefore kinking the hoses/metal lines because the gas tank was bowed in in multiple spots. we are guessing that the tank was not venting properly.
